Sierra Knolls Winery produces small lots of fine wine with close attention to every detail of the wine-making process.  The owners, Steve & Brenda Taylor, are long time wine lovers who began making wine with friends in 1998 as home wine makers.  Our wines are aged in French & American oak barrels, or stainless in our 50 foot barrel cave. Sierra Knolls Winery is green-minded and solar powered.

Beginning with our first commercial vintage in 1999, our wines have been known for consistently high quality, robust fruit, big noses and long satisfying finishes.

Estate vines, Merlot (1998) and Zinfandel (2004) were planted by hand (ours) on a beautiful 44 acres setting at 2000' elevation in south Nevada County.
